WHAT TO EXPECT
The first thing that comes to mind when people think of New Zealand is adventure tourism. Queenstown has been dubbed the 'adventure capital of the world' - so it is no surprise that it is here where the Bungy phenomenon all began. It started in the 80s when AJ Hackett and Henry van Asch developed and tested Bungy cords, both convinced that people would pay to experience the huge rush of adrenaline associated with Bungy. After extensive testing and with the help of Auckland University Scientists, the first jumps were made, and in November 1988, the World's first Commercial Bungy Operation opened at the Kawarau Bridge. Nearly 30 years later, over 3.5 million jumps have taken place, and AJ Hackett now operates the 'world's most innovative gravity related products anywhere on the planet'.
AJ Hackett Bungy have a variety of products on offer, from the Bungy Jump to the Swing, the Zipride & Climb.
The Ledge Swing
Swing 400 metres above Queenstown and experience an adrenaline rush like no other! The Ledge Swing puts your destiny in your own hands as the only way to start swinging is for you to pull the self-release cord.
If you manage to stop screaming, make sure to look up and take in the very best views of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu.
There is no tandem option available on the Ledge Swing, meaning that it is a 100% solo achievement - you go glen coco!
